Well, I obviously haven't been around here lately.  They've once again rearranged the furniture!

Anyone in the Sacramento area have a son or daughter who may just be a natural born drummer?   Nick at Pick-Up-Sticks offers a variety of affordable ways to help students unleash the percussion animal within (with the most recent being an intense three-day drum lessons camp!)   And ....  It looks like he may offer online lessons as well, for those who are not in the area.

Greetings everyone and happy holidays! 
Thanks for the invite, +Art Zemon

I must admit, the last few months I've spent less time on G+ than I had been, keeping busy with this, that, and the other. 
I work at least three days a week as a legal assistant, and the rest of the week manage my own antiques/collectibles website and .... well, the list is always growing, changing.  :)
I love books, enjoy cooking, am an animal lover (we have two cats and two dogs), and join Todd in the request to share names of any good restaurants!

I've decided that men have it easy.  I mean, how often do they get new hair cuts only to find that they're not able to replicate what the stylist did with ease...

For sure! My hair never looks like what the stylist does. EVER.

Salted caramel bonbons, anyone?  (Just looking at them makes me feel better!)

Thanks so much for the invite, Amy.  Back in October/November, I finally decided it was time to do something with the MailChimp account I set up at the beginning of the year, and sent out my first email blast.  It's a great system, and I'm sure there's much yet to learn.

Happy new year to everyone!

Well, it seems that Amazon Cloud has sites in the dark ....  again.

Oh well, this little distraction was an amusing read...

Story
Introduction
Welcome to this week's edition of my G+ Profile!  (Yes, slowly but surely I'm adding pieces of me to this little puzzle.  You see, I'm one of those G+ introverts you occasionally read about.)

If you add me to a circle but don't yourself have:
  • a profile photo
  • something of substance in your "About" introduction
  • an occasional Public post
with all giving a hint of who you are and what you're about, don't expect to find yourself added to any of my circles.  I'm truly not a snob; it's just issues of comfort and "quality over quantity" for me.

So, who am I and what am I about?  Boy, sometimes that's a good question (and one I have to occasionally ask myself!)

My interests are varied.  For instance, I enjoy...
-- cooking (I have close to 100 cookbooks)
-- gardening (dirt therapy is great!)
-- music 
-- writing (my younger, less fragmented self used to enjoy self-expression through poetry)

I have a piano, but don't play as often as I should.  Torturing the neighbors' ears is on my list of things to do.

In my imagination, I'm a great belly dancer, but I have to admit, I've never taken a class or even tried.  What can I say...  There's just something about the music that calls to my navel!  

We have four furkids - two cats and two dogs - all of whom adore us, and the feeling is mutual. 

In addition to working as a legal assistant, I'm in the antiques and collectibles business, and am the owner of Flashback Alley, an online shop.  I find that as I've gotten older, my appreciation for old things has deepened.  Hopefully good ol' Karma remembers that in the decades to come! 

Finally, while recycling is a part of my everyday life, it's not something I'm as likely to do via the Internet.  I try to keep the majority of my posts (at least non-public ones) more reflective of me, in the semi-edited form, as imperfect as that may be.
